defending vice president joe biden's comments on the deadly attack in libya that killed four americans including the u.s. ambassador. last night the moderator of the vice presidential debate asked vice president biden whether the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi was an intelligence failure and reminded him that officials had requested more security. the vice president gave the following response. >> we weren't told they wanted more security. we did not know they wanted more security. at the time, we were told exactly, we said exactly what the intelligence community told us that they knew. that was the assessment. >>trace: early this week a top security officer in libya and national security guardman who led the security team said that he told the house of representatives committee that the state department officials denied the request for additional security in libya. remember that? today the white house press secretary carney said vice president biden was not referencing the state department when he said he did not know about the security request. >> he was speaking directly f

impact just because paul ryan and joe biden are very aggressive debaters. we are going to see vice president biden go after paul ryan for the ryan budget that has been a big deal on capitol hill in the last four years. paul ryan will certainly defend his views on this. we will probably see some more sparks than in the first debate. >>shepard: one thing that governor romney has been criticized from both sides of the aisle, he didn't have specifics on a budget plan, and in came paul ryan as a vice presidential candidate, and the word was, well, not all of those specifics. it seems like they will have to put a laser on that. >>guest: that is what palm ryan will -- what paul ryan will do. but he is broad in his thinking and they don't not want him to get specific. that is what biden will push on. paul ryan may not have those answers. >>shepard: time will tell, the day after tomorrow. today, sandusky learned his punishment for raping little boys but first he had a chance to speak to the court. he reminded us what you need to do is blame the victims. because it is their fault, after all.
